  1. Development of an Anthropometrically Modifiable Munitions Operator (AMMO) System

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0121004

    The proposed research plan will start at a TRL 1 and commence with the collection of dynamic recoil response field data using a firearm and ammunition chosen by the DHS for testing. Data will be collected for a firearm operator that classifies as a 90th percentile male, and an operator that classifies as a 50th percentile or smaller female based on height and weight. The data will then be fit to a ...

  2. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...

  3. A Novel Fractionation and Concentration System for Improved Biological Detection

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: HSB0111002

    Detection of bioaerosols is a cornerstone in the protection of our nation from bioterrorist and pandemic events. Rapid bioaerosol detection systems have advanced dramatically in recent years, but the lack of integratable automated sample preparation for these systems remains a major deficiency. Three significant issues are (a) a lack of an interface between large environmental samples and sample p ...

  4. A Machine Learning Tool for Image Quality Assessment through Prediction of Iris Recognition Success

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC (formerly Rhobotika, LLC)            Topic: HSB0112005

    In Phase I we developed a machine learning method for predicting match score errors in iris imagery to determine the quality of the image. We now propose to develop a flexible and configurable tool for creating, refining, and applying such a match score predictor to any image quality assessment problem where a training signal can be identified. The tool will enable users to supply ground truth for ...

  5. Standoff Explosive Raman AIT Upgrade Module

    SBC: Alakai Defense Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0112004

    Alakai proposes to develop a Standoff Explosive Raman AIT Upgrade Module (SERAUM) which utilizes, Eye-safe, deep UV Raman scanning/imager to detect explosives and their precursors, for short standoff trace explosive detection. This system is designed for integration into DHS's Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) systems to provide a chemical signature of explosives thereby improving the screening ef ...

  6. Forensic Acqusition of Solid State Storage Devices

    SBC: CPR Tools Inc.            Topic: HSB0122001

    Solid state drives (SSD) suffer from data modification issues caused by internal influences such as those caused by manufacturer implemented functionality designed to increase product life and maintain performance. The purpose of the proposed innovation is to address these issues to provide the capability of acquiring a full forensic data copy while maintaining the forensic integrity of the subje ...

  7. Discriminatory Analysis Display Assessment Toolkit (DADA)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: HSB0122003

    The Discriminatory Analysis Display Assessment toolkit (DADA) will provide a methodology and embedded data analysis protocol to assess display technology image quality. DADA will identify the image/display characteristics that significantly impact human visual perception, specifically the ability to perceive and resolve key characteristics of screen objects. Further, DADA will incorporate percep ...

  8. Next Generation Neutron Detectors for Backpack and Handheld Applications

    SBC: Innovative American Technology Inc.            Topic: 111001

    Innovative American Technology Inc. (IAT) has developed a prototype backpack, a handheld neutron detector and a directional neutron detector based on our 6LiFZnS(Ag) neutron detector design. IAT has also developed prototype designs for a miniaturized sensor electronics module (MSEM) that integrate signal processing and power into an individual neutron detector module and the application of a solid ...

  9. IP Hopper (for Moving Target Defense)

    SBC: CYBERNET SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0121002

    The IP Hopper is a moving target defense system that will use available network data and hopping algorithms to allow for constant IP address changing of both source and destination IP addresses. The use of "hopping" IP addresses will severely diminish an attacker's ability to attack any one target within a network. Utilizing IPv6 the IP Hopper will allow up to 340 undecillion (3.4 x 10 to the 38 ...

  10. Ruggedization of Commercial-Grade Handheld Electronics for First Responders

    SBC: CYBERNET SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0122004

    Ruggedized electronics can be costly; utilizing commercial-grade hand-held computing/communication device and combining with well-designed case can provide ruggedization (impact, temperature, moisture) and extend capabilities such as integrated inclusion of smartcard/CAC readers, biometrics, and advanced barcode scanners. This program will determine the requirements for ruggedizing a device and us ...
